Agility Run-Throughs are on BACK!!
We are excited to announce that we are back on track for our very fun Agility Run-Throughs!
Friday, January 23 and Friday, January 30 from 7:15-9:15
The run-throughs will provide handlers an opportunity to run and train on a numbered agility course. The course will consist of a Masters/Excellent level course nested with a Starters/Novice level course so that handlers and dogs of all skill levels can participate.
Course set up begins at 6pm. The course will be open for running from 7 PM until 9 PM, with the last entries for runs taken at 8:30 PM, and the equipment will be put away beginning at 9 PM or when the last run is completed, whichever occurs first. SOTC members will be able to participate for free in exchange for helping with bar setting, gating, and other tasks during the run-throughs. Non-SOTC members will be charged a nominal fee of $10. All participants must sign a liability waiver prior to participating. Handlers may have as many runs as they wish. Each run will be timed for a maximum of 2 minutes. Teams and their runs will be cycled through the jump heights as they sign up.
ATTN: for field conditions on the night of the run throughs, please contact Karen Skoyec at email@example.com.
Each day of the week, you will find many different class offerings in AGILITY, OBEDIENCE, RALLY, FLYBALL and for PUPPIES!. Whether you and your canine companion are just beginning or are competing at national levels, SOTC has a class offering for you. Our instructors and assistants average over 22 years of training; actively participate in showing or competing with their dogs and all strive for positive training experiences for you and your dog.
